Charles C. Baird and Sarah Barlow

New York to Ohio

History of Hocking Valley Ohio, Canaan Township

J.W. Baird, merchant, was born in Sullivan Co New York, June 06, 1827, and is the son of C. [Charles] C. & Sarah "Barlow" Baird, who came to Athens County in 1836 and located in Rome Township where N.O. Warren now resides. Our subject was educated in the common schools and,completed it at Miller's Academy. At the age of fifteen he became engaged as a clerk in a store, in which he remained until he was married, December 31, 1847 to Miss Lorinda Warren, a daughter of the venerable N.O. Warren of Rome Township.

Mr. and Mrs. Baird have seven children  ---   Waldo, Lydia, Charles, Lot L., Augustus, Grace and Wade.

At the time of his marriage Mr. Baird became engaged in farming, in which he continued until 1860. He then became a partner of C.D.B Webster in the mercantile business at Canaanville, which partnership existed until 1878. He then purchased Mr. Webster's interest and still continues in the business, where he receives, as he deserves, a liberal share of the public patronage.

Although he never craved office, yet the people had such perfect confidence in him that they have given him nearly all the offices of trust in the township. He has held the office of Justice of the Peace for nine years and at the same time held the officeof Township Clerk and Assessor. He has been Postmaster at this point for about twenty years. He took the census of the township in 1880. He owns 160 acres of land and has been generally successful in all his undertakings.

According to what I found on Rootswebs World Connect, C.C. and Sarah also had a child:

Julia A . Baird, born 30 October 1831 in Guysville Ohio, and died 04 January 1896 in Guyville Ohio, married Amos Bean on 09 October 1851 and had 1 child, Mary Jane Bean

No information was found on Sarah Barlow, other than that she was married to Charles C. Baird.
